Class Novel Resources

About this page

"Class Novels" are supplemental reading approved by the Board of Education. This page represents titles identified by NVUSD teachers as currently in use and does not include textbooks or out-of-print titles. The complete list of approved titles may be found here

TEACHERS: If the book you wish to use for your class is not on this list, it must be approved by the Board before it is assigned. 

SUGGEST A TITLE FOR APPROVAL Approved non-core and supplemental materials must be agreed on by all schools and must be approved by the Board of Education. These titles may be used by individual sites/classrooms to supplement and not "supplant" the core.
